Manuel Mayr - Multiomics approaches for systems biology in human cardiovascular disease
Manuel Mayr is a British Heart Foundation Professor in Cardiovascular Proteomics based at King’s College London, UK. His group uses proteomics in combination with other -omics technologies, such as metabolomics, lipidomics and microRNA profiling, to integrate biological information in disease-specific networks that drive pathopysiological changes. While studying molecular interactions has been a research focus for many years and has provided important insight into biology, the attention has now shifted towards a more integrative network biology approach.
The Berlin Center for Translational Vascular Biomedicine, jointly founded by the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the Helmholtz Association, represents an interdisciplinary scientific network with the pronounced aim to foster translation in the field of vascular biomedicine. It unites leading scientific knowledge with clinical expertise and thereby promotes the transfer of scientific insights to clinical use.
Pursuing its mission, the Center initiated the Lecture Series “Vascular Networking” to invite distinguished experts and promote international scientific exchange to both enrich the Berlin scientific community and provide the foundation for new and visionary collaborations.
The lecture series is conducted in an online-format and attracts a broad audience from the wider Berlin community. The online event will comprise a 45 min talk and a 15 min open discussion followed by a 1 hour closed exchange with 3-4 interested experts. These slots are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are interested please indicate so on your event registration.
